Jetting help

I'm in the process of rejetting. Got the top done in a matter of minutes with no issues. Bottom is another story...

I was following the instructions here:
2004 Honda Rincon - DynoJet Installation Instructions

These and everything else I read make it sound like you just loosen a few things and then flip the carb over no problem. The trouble it that I can't figure out how to get the carb to flip over short of disconnecting everything and pulling it out. I have to be doing something wrong. Maybe I'm trying to turn it the wrong way or something, but it seems like it only has room to turn one way because it's right next to the frame. Does anyone have any tips to make this easier?

I tried to disconnect the throttle cable because that was tight, but that didn't help. Do I have to pull it out from between the two large tubes? Instructions say I "may have to" but I don't see any other way. I got the air box tube off, but the air box wouldn't "move back" enough for me to get the carb out of the large tube on the engine side or to lift it out. Every thread I have read about rejetting just makes it sound so simple I feel like I have to be missing something.

Trying to install a 155 main jet and 52 pilot jet. Thanks.

The best way I have found is to take off the snorkel, then take out the two 10 mm bolts at the rear of the air box. Next I turn off the gas and open the drain on the bottom of the carb bowl with a long flat head. Then you loosen the band clamps on the front and rear of the carb and you can pull the whole air box off of the rear of the carb. Then you should be able to pull the carb out of the front boot, then pull the vent off that goes to the air box. you then have to unclip the idle adjustment cable out of it's little holder. Finally then you should be able to pull the carb strait up and enough to get to the screws on the bottom of the bowl.

That should get you there, I don't think I have missed anything. When putting it back together just make sure you route the drain hose back down the same way it came out so it can drain if needed. Plus remember to close the bowl drain while you have it out where it's easy. Also make sure you check that your idle adjustment works with the way you put it back. When you are putting the carb back into the boots make sure you get it in all the way around on each.

It's not too bad when you have done it a few times. Takes me about 45 minutes. But good luck and hope this helps. Sorry for the long post

Thanks xrmountainman. That was a huge help. I was able to get the jets changed out following your instructions. Forgot to put the baffle plate back in though, so I'll have to take it apart again. I know it's not really needed, but I'd just feel better having it in there.

Went with a 52 pilot and 155 main. Seems to be running good now. If I go WOT from a dead stop, I can feel the front wheels lift a little without even pulling back on the handlebars.

Glad to help.

I have not read that the little baffle really does anything, but it sure is a pain in the butt to get back in their straight.
